Art, Environment, and the Urban Landscape: A Conversation with Atul Bhalla

March 5, 2015 ▪ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Atul Bhalla has explored the physical, historical, spiritual, and political significance of water to the urban environment and population of his city (New Delhi) through artworks that incorporate sculpture, painting, installation, video, photography, and performance. Engaged with the shared environmental and ethical concerns of a new generation, he is a conceptual artist who examines this new generation’s relationship to water and its cultural meaning.  His works address issues of contemporary needs versus consequent roles of natural, cultural, or built heritage, decoding the contemporary landscape of urbanism and environmental crisis in India. Atul lives and works in Delhi, India and teaches in the Art, Design and Performing Arts Department of Shiv Nadar University.
